Movie Details

Synopsis In April 1981, prophets of a new winter sport gathered in Ski Cooper in Leadville, Colorado to test their skills at "surfing" powder. Witness the beginning of snowboarding. Join early believers as they grab first air and attempt maneuvers that are now considered classic moves in snowboarding exhibition and competition.

Currently the hottest winter sport, snowboards once were prohibited on almost all ski slopes. Compare early technology of boards and bindings, and the exuberant art of snowboarding... long before it achieved Olympic recognition.

Featuring the original boards from Burton Snowboards, Sims Snowboards and Winterstick.
